Tropical Storm Emily continues to batter the island of Hispaniola, dumping incredible amounts of rain over the Dominican Republic and Haiti over the last few days. The NHC says that when it's all said and done, Emily is expected to have dumped 6-12 inches of rain, with isolated amounts of 20 inches where the heaviest bands set up. Because of the rugged terrain and poor drainage in the DR and Haiti, life-threatening flash floods and mudslides are a very big hazard with this system. Emily only exacerbates poor living conditions in Haiti, which is still trying to recover from the January 2010 earthquake.
Here is the 2PM advisory from the Hurricane Center. This forecast assumes that Emily survives the mountains of Hispaniola.
